Microsoft's CES Keynote: Halo and More Junk

Microsoft held their keynote at CES 2009 which covered the Halo franchise for 2009 and improvements coming to the Xbox Experience this year. Now I'm sure the Halo fans are stoked for Halo Wars and Halo 3: ODST and that's good for them, but the rest of the crap that Xbox announced was boring.

The game creator looked like something Nintendo should be selling to their casual market and not Microsoft to their key gamers and the fact that Microsoft is talking about the PrimeTime channel again is nothing new. We knew about it already and it should have been available at launch time with all the rest of the new features on NXE.

Show us something we didn't already know about or something we care about. Thanks.

I'm sensing some animosity towards Microsoft there. Keep in mind this is CES and not E3 or the like. I wasn't impressed with anything they presented, but this isn't the time for huge gaming announcements.

I like Microsoft or I wouldn't own their console. I just wasn't impressed with their keynote presentation that's all. It was like watching a Nintendo presentation.

Very true! I'm definitely looking forward to GDC. The are whispers that Mass Effect 2 will be shown, which is more than enough to make up for these slow January and February gaming months.
